As powerful as he is, Mitch McConnell has gotten oddly little attention over the years, in large part because he offers little superficial appeal. But McConnell holds the key to understanding how our politics and government have come to such a low point.
When two politicians debate the role of government, it is almost always Democrat vs. Republican. Which is why it was so refreshing and instructive to read of the debate taking place among Republicans in a small city in southeastern Kentucky.
Having lived in Cincinnati, Ohio for 14 years, I know what Maker's Mark is. I'm guessing you are a Kentucky girl? Or you're a Southern girl with a penchant for whiskey? I'm hedging on the latter...
A man from Kentucky was arrested and tossed in jail late last month for allegedly making terroristic threats and supposedly threatening to kill students at a school when he posted lyrics by a metal band on his Facebook page.
Is there a correlation between the drop in unions and the drop in defined benefits plans? It certainly seems like it. As defined benefit plans are going away, so is the safety net for older Americans. Most bankruptcy filers are under age 54, but there is a steady rise in bankruptcies of people over age 55.
Congressman Whitfield should learn the many benefits of reducing pollution. Lives saved, asthma attacks prevented, and heart attacks avoided just to name a few.
Today on Women's Equality Day, we commemorate the passage of women's right to vote -- celebrating how far we have come, but also recognizing the work that remains. Sometimes it seems like women are the only people coming together across party lines to get things done.

The first step that all seriously committed couples, same sex or heterosexual, should do is find a competent financial planner to help them plot out a well thought out strategy.
Republicans, but not Democrats, understand that if a voter wants to show his displeasure or anger at the ballot box, it does not matter that you have nothing to offer him. They have played that game for decades.
There's no shortage of campaign strategy advice in this year's Kentucky Senate race. In that spirit, I'll add my own two cents. If I were advising the McConnell campaign, I would say... Don't screw up.
Ain't freedom grand? And what says freedom better than being free from government mandates like the guarantee that you can't be denied health insurance because of a pre-existing condition?
Paul Ryan is attempting to address poverty, once again. What he's really doing is trolling the media to write "compassionate conservative" columns about him (which, so far, doesn't seem to be working very well), to bolster his chances to get the Republican presidential nomination.
Lexington is horse country in every sense of the word and, on my drive from the airport, I was enthralled with the spectacular scenery: the rolling hills of Kentucky's famed Blue Grass region with pretty red barns, fields and meadows.
